Hey,
I was wondering how i would sort a column by the number of letters? for
example:
Mark
Larry
Andrew
etc.

I'm kinda new to excel, so as much information would be appreciated :)

I'd use an adjacent column with a formula like:

=len(a1)

and drag down.

Then select all the range and data|sort by that helper column
